The Village Bicycle Project (a not-for-profit organization) arranges for the trans-Atlantic shipping to Accra, Ghana. Once in Ghana, bike mechanics repair the bikes, sell them at subsidized prices, and give maintenance workshops to help people learn how to ride their new bike and fix it up themselves.
